Description: Yellow man's V-neck slipover with various patterning.
I am amazed to find 4 of these patterns - all from the 1960s and modelled in yellow. I feel there must have been some driver for this - fashion icon of the day, James Bond, royalty, golfer, famous designer original etc but can find no reference to it and I do not remember it myself from personal experience.
I have listed the four next to each other here so you can have a laugh, and tell me if you know the answer.
